A powerpoint I use during my workshops. Creatures on opening screen (greenfly, earth to highlight amount of green plant life, blackbird, honey bee, snail, fox, sparrowhawk, ladybird larvae, blue tit) can be used to make a food chain or web (blue tits eat green fly too). Rose-->greenfly-->ladybird larvae-->blue tit--->sparrowhawk
All creatures in rest of ppt (woodlice, snails, frogs, millipedes) are found in many school grounds and include mention to their adapted features. Hope it comes in useful - please visit my website www.wildworkshops.co.uk and book a science visit for your class!
The first week involving a literacy plan for learning about newspapers, including their structure. The plan involved the 2012 Olympics but also used nursery rhymes to help frame how a newspaper column is laid out.
A week's planning including worksheets and teaching aides introducing the children to the formal method of division (referred in plans as the bus stop method). Also included are related word problems and extensions.
The children often struggled with questions that masked to work out a missing coordinate so I pulled all the previous SATs questions I could find on this to go through and explain them. I also made a game to add in the missing point on a grid with four quadrants to make 2D shapes.
A Key Stage 1 (age 6-7) Science resource based around the ocean as a theme. This worksheet is a lighthouse for students to colour in.
Alive, Dead, or Never Lived?
All living things do seven things:
- grow bigger or older
- get rid of waste
- need food
- use oxygen for energy
18 science glossaries for different parts of the curriculum. They were originally designed for KS3 but can be used earlier or later depending on ability.
These can be used for reference or spelling homework or starts to topics.
Chemistry - Acids & Alkalis, Atoms & Elements, Compounds & Mixtures, Reactions of Metals and Simple Chemical Reactions.
Biology - Cells, Environment & Feeding Relationships, Food & Digestion, Plants & Photosynthesis, Reproduction, Sound and Hearing & Variation
Physics - Electric Circuits, Energy Resources, Gravity & Space, Space & Beyond, Particle Theory and Speeding Up
Pet cards and skin texture boards. Children to sort the cards onto the correct board, depending on which skin type they have. Can provoke discussion around why animals have certain skins (temperature regulation, protection, sensory needs). Could also introduce camouflage.
